Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 4/19/2015

Sunday’s message from The Sermon on the Mount series was called Will the Real Murderer Please Stand Up?, taken from Matthew 5:21-26. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. The real meaning of murder (21-22)
   A. Anger – the attitude behind the act (Proverbs 16:2; 1 John 3:15)
   B. What about Jesus?
      1) Angry at sin
         – Mark 3:1-6; Matthew 21:12-13; 23:16-17; Ephesians 4:26
      2) But did not retaliate when personally offended
         – 1 Peter 2:23, Luke 23:34

II. The importance of reconciliation (23-24)
   A. Example: offering gift at the altar (Isaiah 1:11-15; Jeremiah 7:9-11)
   B. The principle: must reconcile first (Psalm 66:18; 1 John 3:20-21)

III. The urgency of reconciliation (25-26)
   A. Example: adversary taking you to court
   B. The principle: do not delay (Ephesians 4:26-27; Romans 12:18)
